    Up & Comers, Future La Liga stars

    Figured this might be a worthwhile thread to start, scouting and discussing the future stars of the Primera Liga for all players under 21 years of age (DOB no later than January 1, 1989) for 2010-2011 season

    In no particular order

    Antoine Griezmann - Left Winger - (Real Sociedad): Helped Sociedad return to the Primera through promotion...Pace, dribbling, crosses & technique are all at a high level already...Just needs to get a bit stronger...As per usual, English clubs are waiting to poach but the kid signed a contract through 2015 with the club

    Ander Herrera - Attacking Mid - (Real Zaragoza): May sound like blasphemy but the kid has been compared to Iniesta for his great touch & control...Can't seem to verify this but it's purported he was the most fouled player in La Liga last season

    Ivan Bolado - Forward - (Racing Santander): With Tchite & Canales out of the mix, this kid is expected to be the one to fill the void

    Iker Muniain - Forward/Winger - (Athletic Bilbao): I almost left this kid out along with De Gea since, despite being the right age, they are not really unknowns...Still, this kid will be a future Spanish star, little doubt of that

    Sergio Canales - Attacking Mid - (Real Madrid): Nearly as hyped as Krkic but will likely suffer on the bench at RM, I fear...Oozes class & technique...Still not the complete package although not sure how likely he will grow much as a player this season

    Juanmi Jiménez - Forward - (Malaga): Linked to many clubs, including Barca...Diminutive but lethal

    Borja González - Forward/Midfielder - (Atlético Madrid): Skilled & fast...Goalscorer

    Sebastián Gallegos - Forward - (Atlético Madrid): A promising Uruguayan who actually first had a shot at a contract with Barcelona but his father/agent rejected due to inability of club to accomodate his family coming with them to Spain

    Thiago Alcántara (Barca) - Attacking Mid: - Not much to say that hasn't already been said...Future is looking bright...gotta wear shades

    Griezmann was wreaking havoc a good portion of tonight's match against the capital club...€30 million buyout clause in his newly signed contract will potentially need to be reworked perhaps
